Aker Solutions has been awarded two contracts for Petrobras' P-55 project in Brazil for the design and supply of an Aker Solutions' Pusnes offshore mooring system(TM) and a Pusnes riser pull-in system(TM). The total contract value for Aker Solutions is approximately NOK 130 million.
 
The contracts consist of 16 roller RamWinches(TM) and several specially designed winches and wire routing system for a semi production unit owned by Petrobras PN BV. The semi production unit will be built at the new Rio Grande shipyard in Brazil. After completion it will be located on the Roncador Field offshore Brazil.

The RamWinch(TM) combines low weight with high pulling capacity thereby reducing overall cost for the client. The first Pusnes offshore mooring winches(TM) were delivered in the late 1960's to semisubmersible drilling rigs. Today Aker Solutions has established itself as one of the world's leading suppliers of deepwater offshore mooring systems.
 
Delivery will take place during 2010. The contract party is Aker Solutions' subsidiary Aker Pusnes AS.
